The Red Tomahawk Expeditionary Force is pleased to announce that for the first time in anyone’s recent memory, this edition of the Summer Solstice Expedition is hereby declared Year of the Cupcake. What does that mean for you, adventurer?
What: 7th Annual Summer Solstice Expedition
When: June 19-22, 2014 (four days, three nights)
Where: Hoover Wilderness, just north of Tioga Pass
Girlish Laughter: Yes
Bear Canisters: Supposedly required. But hey, it’s Your Call.
Trip Distance: 15 miles (about half of what we sometimes do)
Layover Days: 1 (Yes, it’s true, we will camp in the same location for two consecutive nights. Bring your books and Advil.)
Extraction: A mere 3.5 mile hike on the final day guarantees* Sunday visits to Mono Cone, the Mobil Station, and Schat’s Bakery.
Unlike some (all?) of our other trips, this one should be a good opportunity if you have family or friends you’ve always wanted to drag along on a backcountry trip, especially if you’re trying to wreck the relationships with said people.
* Have you learned nothing? There’s no guarantee, you jackass.
